… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Hippo Born at Taman Safari

Dea, a 20-kilogram female hippopotamus calf, is the newest member of a herd living in captivity at the Taman Safari Indonesia in Bogor, West Java.

According to the conservation park’s spokesman, Yulius Suprihardo, the calf was born on Feb. 26 and was named by a local military commander, Joko Sutomo. She was introduced to the public at the park on Sunday.

“We could not introduce her sooner to because the calf's mother is very protective, making it difficult for us to take pictures of the newborn,” Yulius told the Jakarta Globe on Tuesday, adding that Dea was the fifth calf of the species born under the park’s breeding program.

According to the herd’s keeper, Sabaryanto, the calf’s 11-year-old mother, Sarah, gave birth to Dea about nine months after mating with a 16-year-old bull named Jana. Dea has become the 11th hippo under his care.

Sabaryanto, who has been the herd’s keeper for 10 years, said he kept track of Sarah’s gestation period since the mating occurred because he could not really tell if the 2,500-kilogram cow was really pregnant due to her bulky and plump body.

A week before Sarah gave birth, Sabaryanto said, “I noticed there were changes in her body and her water was also starting to break.”

“Hippos are not normally difficult to breed, but it would not be so easy when a female hippo is introduced to a new herd where she needs to take time to adapt,” he said.

Park director Jansen Manansang, said he was happy the new calf had been born in the park.

“This proves that our conservation program is running well,” he said.

The herbivorous hippos are found mainly in sub-Saharan Africa and are listed as a vulnerable species under the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species. Their habitat is disappearing and they are illegally hunted for their meet and ivory teeth.
